In a previous blog post I share 7 tips for making an appointment with Chessed Ve'Emet. Since then, we have had further encounters / interactions with potential clients or those wanting our services that left us rather frustrated to say the least. We are noticing a trend of people making inquiries and not following through. Asking for me to call them and then avoiding the calls once I phone. Making an appointment and not showing. Sending in a fax and not following up as to whether it arrived etc. I could continue the list but rather than become frustrated I am mulling over another idea. If there are so many who are falling short of following through on something they begin to explore, is there a need for a book on social skills and possibly life skills for setting goals or for following through on goals.
Where is the problem and what is your need? Would you enjoy reading a book or eBook or attending a course that will help you to:
- make calls effectively
- keep appointments that you have scheduled
- set appropriate goals
- set suitable action plans in order to achieve those goals
- draw up a list of things to do according to your action plans
- schedule time to achieve these goals and to follow through
- learn how to say thank you when assistance is offered or provided
Please do me a favour and send in a comment as to which of these you would like to read more about. I look forward to hearing from you.
